    Hello my dearest, dearest chums! I am aware I have been hiding away for quite a few months now, and you won't be surprised to hear that A Levels have officially taken over my life, writing has ground to a screeching halt and I basically have no social life.

    But that is not my only excuse. For the past four months, I have been growing dusty inside the school library with my head constantly shoved inside a book, preparing for University applications and interviews. So I thought I should relay to you all some wonderful news I received yesterday...

    I have been made an offer to study English at Trinity College, CAMBRIDGE!!

    To say I'm happy/excited/still in shock, would be an insulting understatement. I have, thankfully, stopped crying uncontrollably by now.

    So sorry for disappearing completely and abandoning you all. I wish I could be more creatively productive now, but unfortunately, I, as of yesterday, now have 2A*s and 2A's to gain... thanks a bunch, Cambridge ;)

    But here is also a solemn promise: I shall hang around to chat, and yes, the creativity is still going on in my life, just mostly in my head and never enough time to write it down in order to give it complete justice.

    Also, my novel 'When They Whisper' is nearly finished and I am on the hunt for Beta readers if you are interested! I don't want to put the whole thing on here due to legal reasons, but seeing as no more is currently being written, if you want to receive a 90% finished novel and give feedback on how you think it will/want it to end, please get in touch :)

    How is everyone in this universe? I've honestly missed you all too much <3 xxx

    Thanks White Ravens! xx

    Why hello there, Rogue, I've missed you! What has life thrown your way since we last spoke?

    Love2write, it really has been ages! I was really disappointed with myself: thought I was gunna party all evening and instead was so emotionally shattered I just went to bed ;) How's school? xx

    No matter where or when you are, school seems to love making life difficult ;)
    I'm taking English Lit, Latin, Philosophy&Ethics and Music this year. Not many essays... :P I'm guessing you take English? xx

    Ohh lit and lang sounds wonderful! Wish my school offered that! Music is meant for hobbies really, I only have to do it because my school is a specialist music one... the A Level is no fun at all :'( but Latin definitely is! Hard work indeed, but I simply love the Classical world and everything about it, even the impossible language ;)
    If you want to be introduced to philosophy, read 'The Philosophy Files' by Stephen Law: really user-friendly, perfect for an introduction and picks on all the biggest topics and issues. Very funny, too! xx
